Rotherham United can leave for seven-figure fee as relegation nears, Sheffield United keen

Rotherham United goalkeeper Viktor Johansson will see a seven-figure release clause come into play as an impending relegation nears, as per the Rotherham Advertiser.

Rotherham United haven’t had all that much to smile about this season. They’re rooted to the bottom of the Championship table after three wins in 38 games and relegation to League One looks to be a certainty.

In such a poor campaign, there haven’t been many players to stand out. However, goalkeeper Johansson has been one to catch the eye, putting in a host of impressive performances despite being part of the Championship‘s leakiest backline.

Many will expect the 25-year-old Sweden international to move away this summer rather than drop to the third-tier. Now, details of just how that might pan out have emerged from the Rotherham Advertiser.

They state that a seven-figure release clause will come into action upon the drop to League One. It is added that the fee is not as sizeable as the sum they could have landed for cashing in this winter.

Sheffield United are said to be admirers but it could be that interest emerges across Europe.

Who is this?

An inevitable transfer?

Release clause or not, many would expect Johansson to move on from Rotherham United this summer. He’s a regular in the Sweden squad and as one of the league’s busiest ‘keepers, he’s stood out.

He’s more than just a goalkeeper made to look better by the sheer number of saves he needs to make too. A move to a club at a higher level – or at least a more upwardly mobile second-tier side – is more than deserved.

Time will tell just how much the Millers get from a sale but with the undisclosed seven-figure fee in the deal, a transfer will hand the club a decent financial boost for the summer transfer window. It likely won’t cover the losses of a relegation, but it should help nonetheless.

Nonetheless, Johansson will be fully focused on ending the season well as he plays out what could be his final few games in Rotherham United colours.
